KBSA sales and marketing director Ruth Ward has stepped down from her role due to personal circumstances.
Ward (pictured) joined the trade association in January 2007 and has most recently been working with current acting chief executive and consultant Uwe Hanneck to implement a new strategy for the organisation’s future growth.
KBSA national chair Richard Hibbert said: “Ruth has been a valuable member of our team and her contributions to our continued success are very much appreciated.”
Hanneck added: “Over the coming weeks, we will start the process of recruiting a suitable candidate to take forward our sales and marketing activities. The new recruit will, in cooperation with existing staff at our head office in Mansfield, work to deliver and implement our future policy based on the strategy that has been developed over the past two years.
“In the interim, membership manager Dawn Harlow and I will take direct control of all sales and marketing activities and make sure that it is business as usual. We will be supported by Richard Hibbert and the KBSA board.
“We will continue to drive forward our plans for the current year. These include the AGM and Conference on October 3, 2017. It is our aim to make this year’s the best ever and a future benchmark for the whole of the industry.”
